Overview:
I am a guitarist based out of the Seattle area and my specialty is in vocal jazz accompaniment. I graduated from the University of Southern California in August of 2015 with a BA in Music with Cum Laude Honors. I pride myself in being a supportive and unselfish musician and accompanist, having nearly a decade of experience performing jazz in both the Seattle and Los Angeles areas. I am an accompanist at Cornish College of the Arts in the Jazz Voice Department, accompanying students in lessons and classes taught by both Kelly Ash and Johnaye Kendrick. I currently maintain a busy schedule accompanying jazz vocalists throughout the Seattle area as it is something that I take much pride in and am very passionate about!
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching beginning guitar lessons to friends and classmates in high school. Ever since I picked up the guitar, I knew it was something that I wanted to pursue professionally because of the joy that it brought me. Being able to share that with other people is something I am very passionate about. I continued teaching beginning guitar and advanced jazz harmony to other guitarists in the music program to help pay tuition in college at USC. I taught at Music and Arts in Redmond during the summer after finishing college before moving to the Bothell store within the same organization. 
METHODS USED
For beginning guitar students, I use the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1 as supplemental material. For beginning bass students I use the Hal Leonard Bass Method Book 1 also as supplemental material. For advanced and intermediate students, the supplement material will vary depending on their experience and what they specifically want to get out of music lessons.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching method is very flexible, as I am very cogniscent that students learning styles and goals vary greatly. I am a patient teacher who will work to help put a student in a position to be successful and achieve his or her goals through lesson plans and teaching methods tailored to meet the student's learning style. Seeing students succeed and have fun making progress and improving as a musician brings me a lot of joy!

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
